occupy protesters say they will, quote, stick it to the banks today. they're upset with banks foreclosing on homes. organizers held a protest this morning outside the bank of america located at 15th street and pennsylvania avenue northwest across the street from the white house and the treasury department. they're planning to protest several other banks later today. the board that is overseeing the construction of the multibillion dollar metrorail extension is getting four new members. yesterday the d.c. city council approved the measure allowing the metropolitan washington airports authority to add the new members. the district and maryland will each get one more seat on the board. virginia gets two. officials now believe several gunmen took part in the attack that killed a border patrol agent along the u.s.- mexican border. 30-year-old nicklaus ivy was killed in the attack and a second agent was injured
12:05 pm
yesterday morning. authorities plan to be at the scene of the murder the next few days to collect clues and want to make an arrest in the case. >> at approximately 1:45 in the morning while responding to the sensor activation in that area which is a very active smuggling area, the three agents came under gunfire. >> yesterday's shooting is the first time an agent has been killed while on the job since the shootout occurred two years ago. that incident helped expose operation fast and furious, a botched a.t.f. gun smuggling operation. several suicide bombers launched a deadly attack in syria today killing at least 31 people. the syrian parliament condemned the blast that leveled buildings and trapped many people under the rubble. the government blamed terrorists for the bombings. ten years ago the entire washington, d.c. region spent three weeks living in fear. that time would be known as the
12:06 pm
sniper shootings. the first deadly shooting took place on the night of october 2, 2002. a man was shot in the parking lot of a shoppers food warehouse in wheaton, maryland. at first it was investigated as a single random shooting until the next morning when four people were shot to death. the snipers would kill ten people in all and injure three others. officers eventually arrested john allen muhammad and lee boyd malvo. both were found guilty. malvo was sentenced to life in prison. muhammad was sentenced to death and he was executed in 2009. a new e-mail scam makes you believe that you're getting a message from the f.b.i., but it's really trying to steal your money. one man got a message on his computer saying the f.b.i. had blocked his computer claiming he had done something illegal online. he says he got suspicious when the message he had to make --
12:07 pm
the message said he had to make a $200 online payment within 72 hours to gain use of his computer. then he noticed the message heading read "federal bureau investigation" and not "federal bureau of investigation." that's a small detail that someone could easily overlook. >> if i could help 10, 15, 20 people just because of awareness, then i would be doing a service to my community. >> an f.b.i. spokesperson says the bureau never asks americans for money. still to come when 9news now continues, beta blockers have offered releif to -- relief to heart patients but we're now learning the popular drug may not offer the protection that some patients need.
